Charming & Historical Almonte & Carleton Place

The River Walk in Almonte on The Good Food Tour

Get off the tourist track on vacation and explore these wonderful small towns! Just minutes away from the big tourist scene, Almonte and Carleton Place are easy-going, friendly little towns on the Mississippi River just 30 minutes west of Canada’s capital, Ottawa. 

The Town of Mississippi Mills is made up of the former Townships of Ramsay and Pakenham and the Town of Almonte and created as a result of municipal amalgamations on January 1, 1998. An amazing place to visit and live, Almonte offers its own natural beauty, interesting artists and entrepreneurs, museums, shopping and fabulous food. Most of the location photos on our website were kindly donated by Almonte's very own Brent Eades. Check out his Almonte website:


We are also on Facebook and will be posting food and news items about our tours and our lovely town.
